Our heroes deserve every dollar and benefit a grateful people can provide.

What a sense of entitlement.

Theere is such a thing as genuine entitlement. Compensation for services rendered in a high-risk profession is one such.

Full disclosure: the only entitlement I have left as a result of my service is decent burials for myself and my wife. No pension or other tangible benefit; just two boxes, two stones, two holes, and one flag.

I agree. Pay and benefits for service members ain't bad these days. Toss in all the assorted re-up bonuses and it ain't bad at all.

It ain't easy, but it ain't bad.

Some things are worth paying for. Freedom is one.
